Katrina Parker Takes ‘The Voice’ by Storm With the Fugees’ ‘Killing Me Softly’
Katrina Parker is killing us — but not softly. We’re very aware of her power, and after the rendition of the Fugees’ ‘Killing Me Softly’ she gave on Monday’s live episode of ‘The Voice,’ we sure hope the other seven hopefuls are too.
Perhaps her coach — Adam Levine — put it best when he said “good luck other teams” just before the lights dropped to his hopeful, who rocked a black mini dress to match her overall Adele-ness. Though Katrina Parker has seen the bottom rung twice, she didn’t let it deter her from giving her all, which impressed both her coach and her fans.
“Lauryn Hill is my favorite and she would be proud of you,” Adam said in the rehearsal beforehand. “That’s how good that is.”
He’s right — she stuck it. “It’s hard to believe that just a matter of months ago you were sitting in a cubicle somewhere doing whatever the he — it was you were doing,” Blake Shelton said after her moment to shine, intending it to be a compliment her incredible voice. “Dam–t,” he added, cursing himself for not getting her on his team.
Christina Aguilera too said she wished she was Katrina’s coach, but only so she could make a few suggestions of her own, as Lauryn Hill’s self-proclaimed true biggest fan. The ever “keeping it real” vocalist urged Adam to turn his head away from Tony and give a good, long hard look at Katrina Parker.
Did Katrina Parker win over the hearts of America? Voting opens over the show and we won’t know who will be eliminated until Tuesday, so we’ll have to wait and see.
